导读

米歇尔的两场演讲,就像美国大选这场无底线的丑闻竞赛中的一股清流……是这场总统大选中最重要的演讲。华盛顿邮报用“大师级”来形容这次演讲;洛杉矶时报更直接称之为“总统选举的决定性时刻”。

"... she delivered one of the two best political speeches of the year — the other was her speech at the Democratic National Convention — at an event in New Hampshire."  华盛顿邮报认为大选年两大最佳政治演讲都属于她。

Background
Michelle 
Favorable Rating

米歇尔在美国民众中人气极高,受欢迎程度比特朗普和希拉里两人高得多,甚至比丈夫奥巴马还要受到人们的喜爱。不得不说,她确实是希拉里阵营中的一大“利器”。(《国会山》网站) Obama has become one of Clinton's most powerful surrogates. 


资料图:美国咨询公司盖洛普(Gallup) 8月公布的民调显示,64%的美国人喜欢她,受欢迎程度超越丈夫奥巴马(53%),高居榜首。

Michelle Obama, who has tried to stay out of the political fray (n. a noisy fight) during her husband's presidency, enjoys one of the highest approval ratings among Democratic figures in the country. 


资料图:米歇尔的成长履历,的确是典型的美国梦故事:出生于芝加哥南区(曾经是黑人和底层人聚居地),父亲是城市工人,母亲是家庭妇女。然而,严格的家教和家庭对教育的重视,让她摆脱了平庸的人生轨迹,上常春藤名校,毕业后进入律师事务所工作,并认识了未来的丈夫——当时他们是律所仅有的两名黑人职员。
